DescriptionSimilarities with the other Mr. Nutz game only go as far as the title and main character, although both are side-scrolling platform games. Mr. Nutz the squirrel is holidaying on Peanut Planet when he's called into action to save the local people from a race of chickens. Nutz can fly, swim and dive through the planet on his quest. The level layouts include tunnels and warp zones. Bonus items and additional weapons including bombs are available along the way.

Cancelled Genesis versionA port of Mr. Nutz: Hoppin' Mad was being developed for Genesis (under the name Mr. Nutz 2). Several European magazines even reviewed the game, but it was never released.
DevelopmentThis game started as Timet: The Flying Squirrel and featured a different character (Timet). However the game's publisher Ocean didn't want to have two different squirrel characters in its game catalogue and decided to replace Timet with Mr. Nutz, despite the game featuring a different universe and objections from the creators of Mr. Nutz.
